Sarpsborg vs Genk
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday 4th October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Sarpsborg Stadion (Sarpsborg).
Sarpsborg lost their opening Europa League match in Group I when they were outclassed in Turkey and went down 3-1 to Besiktas. Genk had quite an easy match as they eased to a 2-0 win over Malmo but how will they react when they play away to Sarpsborg a club based in Norway?
Genk will be the favourites to win the game and are odds on to do so with Sarpsborg being available at around 5.00 (4/1) which is excellent value for a team at home. Though the reality is that there is a big gap in quality between the two teams and it would not be a surprise to see Sarpsborg finish bottom of their group.
For Genk they will need to push on after getting a good result over Malmo as they know that their next fixtures will be the most difficult ones coming against the likes of Malmo away and then a Besiktas double header so it will be very important to get a win in this game.

Sarpsborg vs Genk: Prediction
With Genk being odds on they don’t offer the best value even if they should be able to get the job done and win this game.
Sarpsborg did not play well when they lost to Besiktas but what caught the eye was some of the chances they had and the fact that they scored a goal at a ground that is hard to do so.
That is why with the evidence gathered our choice for this game will be to see both teams scoring on the night it what could be a close game overall.
